The #MeToo movement has been a game-changer in the world of entertainment, politics and business. But how can parents make it one in everyday life while raising children? And how can men participate without being accused of the dreaded “mansplaining” or fear of causing more harm than good, no matter their intentions.
On the latest Modern Dads Podcast, guest host Whit Honea speaks with two powerful voices on parents’ roles in the #MeToo movement: Karen Walrond and Mike Reynolds.
Walrond is an author, photographer, speaker and coach. The Houston resident is the creative mind behind Chookooloonks, an award-winning lifestyle, travel, inspiration and photography website. It has received multiple honors from blogging peers in its 14 years of existence.
Walrond is also a best-selling author and has contributed photographs and essays to books on faith and self-expression, and a popular speaker on topics such as self-empowerment, creativity and innovation. She has appeared in national media including PBS, Huffington Post, CNN.com and The Oprah Winfrey Show, and was named one of YWCA-Houston’s 2016 Outstanding Women of the Year.
Reynolds, a father of two daughter from Canada, is the author of the Puzzling Posts parenting blog. He started Everyday Girl Dad, a website that sells T-shirts and crossstitching patterns with pro-daughter, pro-feminist messages.
